#408. Sixty three not out forever.
People on here can blow as many loads as they like over spinners, it's a fact.
This thread isn't really about whether or not they have the potential to become a dominant #1 side though.

Moeen is a perfectly fine bowler FFS
The point is, if SL or anyone else, wants to be number one, they decent a stock of good or better quicks.
For countries like SL, that means breaking their pre-existing paradigms. Otherwise, you're happy with somewhere between 3-5 in the rankings long term.
And that stinks, if you're happy with that.
Being number one for a year is an achievement, but you can't tell me Zaheer + mediocre quick + good spinners = recipe for long term domination. Can't be.
haha.......at least get SL get back to really competitive rather than making them a dominant force overnight
